TAMIS: Excision of Rectal Tumor With Delayed Post-Operative Bleeding

Michael E Dolberg, MD, Jeffrey P Snow, MD. Memorial Healthcare System

Transanal Minimally Invasive Surgery, or TAMIS, is a technique that is used to excise benign rectal polyps and early stage rectal cancers. This video demonstrates the use of TAMIS technique in the excision of a low rectal tumor in a 78 year old male. After developing a post-operative bleed, TAMIS was also used in the emergency setting to control the patient’s rectal bleeding.
